As you probably know, Bangkok is amazing but not necessarily the cleanest place in the world. To get to this hotel, you drive through some shady looking areas but it is well worth it. This hotel is amazing. It has fabulous views of the river from clean, modern rooms. The staff was very attentive and accommodating. The location of the hotel itself is actually really good. You can walk to some great areas of the city yet are located just far enough away to feel a bit isolated. I would totally recommend this hotel.
